STATEMENT OF FAITH
This Church recognizes the Bible as the rule of faith and practice, and holds that living in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ is the true test of fellowship. Each member shall have the responsibility to follow the Word of God under the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit. The following statement of faith, therefore, is not a test, but an expression of the spirit in which the church interprets the Word of God.
WE BELIEVE IN:
-The Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and the only supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
-One God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
-Our Lord Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His mediating work, and His personal return in power and glory.
-The salvation of lost and sinful man through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith, apart from works and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
-The Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a Holy life to
witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.
-The unity in the Spirit of all true believers, the church the Body of Christ.
-The resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved to the resurrection of life, and they that are lost to the resurrection of damnation.
-Holy Matrimony, marriage, as a sacred covenant instituted and ordained by God joining together one man as husband and one woman as wife, before God and men, and as a spiritual representation of the divine relationship between Jesus Christ and his Church.
